A 16-YEAR-OLD boy arrested after an aggravated burglary in Ludgershall remains on conditional bail, police have confirmed.

The incident happened at a property in Andover Road at around 5.15pm on Sunday evening (January 9).

Wiltshire Police previously said a group of around five or six people arrived at the rear of the house and shouted threats at one of the occupants.

They then gained entry by the back door and caused damage to one of the interior doors, before leaving the property, down Fleming Close and dispersing towards the Recreation Ground.

Nobody was injured but some of the offenders were believed to be carrying weapons, including a knife and a metal bar.

The 16-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary and was released. He still remains on conditional bail.

Detective Constable Myles Scott, from Salisbury CID, said at the time: “This was a very frightening incident for those involved and we have been carrying out detailed enquiries over recent days, including conducting house-to-house enquiries and viewing CCTV.

“Our initial assessment is that this is not believed to be a random incident, but has likely been committed by people known to the occupants of the house in some way."
